Adaptation in marine invasion: a genetic perspective

  title={Adaptation in marine invasion: a genetic perspective},
  author={Carolyn K. Tepolt},
  journal={Biological Invasions},
Genetic adaptation—heritable changes that alter an organism’s performance—may facilitate invasion at several scales, but is seldom considered in predicting and managing marine invasions. However, a growing body of research—largely based on emerging genetic approaches—suggests that adaptation is possible and potentially widespread in the marine realm. Here, I review evidence for adaptation in marine invasion, considering both quantitative and genetic studies. Quantitative studies, which consider… CONTINUE READING
